The Baur au Lac has a unique situation in its own private park in the heart of the city and on the shores of the lake from where you can see the snow covered Alps in the background. It is still in the hands of the same owner family and celebrated recently its 165th anniversary. The legendary service of the Baur au Lac has always attracted discerning travellers from around the globe and has earned the hotel its enviable reputation.

Residing in its own private park on the shore of the lake with a unique location at the beginning of the fashionable Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich‘s famous shopping and business district, Baur au Lac is only a stone‘s throw away from all major cultural and tourist attractions.

The suites at the Baur au Lac match the lifestyle of its regular guests in both comfort and spaciousness. The decor exhibits lasting values, the materials are noble, and the ambiance is light and welcoming. This is not just a place to feel at home, but a veritable residence. Each room is individually designed by the owner family. Every room is different in shape, style and colour scheme. Each type of room at the Baur au Lac has its connoisseur. In terms of aesthetics and comfort, even the rooms and suites not affected by the renovation work are always up to date. The individual furnishings have been chosen in France, Italy and Britain and blended into a faithful stylistic concept. Thus do even the bright, extraordinarily luxurious marble baths form a pleasing symbiosis of comfort and genuine luxury. Generously sized and luxurious marble bathrooms match up to highest modern demands of comfort, design and equipment.

The security needs of our guests have also been taken into account, with an electronic locking system and modern smoke detectors. Deep-pile carpets in the corridors absorb unwelcome sounds.
